Liability for Council Tax
We have a tenant who had an initial 6 month Assured Shorthold Tenancy, and then the tenancy continued as a periodic, we understand that although the initial 6 month tenancy expired the tenant is still liable to give at least 4 weeks notice to terminate. We understand that we are able to hold the tenant liable for the notice period in respect of the rent. What is the legal position with the Local Authority,if the tenant moves into another property before the end of the notice period then the tenants main residence could be considered as their new address. Who is liable for the council tax on the property for the remainder of the notice period. Is it the responsibility of the vacating tenant to claim for the original property(ours) as a second property and be liable for it.
